Plastics/Elastomers Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

The Effects of UV Light and Weather on Plastics and Elastomers
Second edition
by Liesl K. Massey

This extensively updated, comprehensive databook was created for design and application engineers, scientists, and material producer technical support and research and development personnel. Important weathering characteristics and material properties of plastics and elastomers are presented in discussion, tabular and graphical sections.

The Effects of UV Light and Weather on Plastics and Elastomers provides a ready reference for comparing materials in the same family as well as materials in different families.

Data are presented on 80 major plastic and elastomer materials, including biodegradable or organic polymers.

The Effects of UV Light and Weather, 2nd Edition:

  • Covers thermoplastics, thermoplastic blends/alloys, biodegradeable thermoplastic alloys, thermosets, thermoplastic elastomers, and thermosetting elastomers (rubbers)
  • The introductory chapter provides basic information on the components of weathering, post exposure material properties affected by weathering, and a review of testing environments
  • Expanded resin information includes brief discussions weathering stabilizers, including color stabilizers
  • Commonly used standardized weathering tests are discussed, including; indoor and outdoor exposures, accelerated outdoor exposure, conventional aging, artificial accelerated tests
  • Presents results of exposure conditions conducted in a variety of environments, from Arizona, Florida and California to Ohio and Pennsylvania to Okinawa, Japan
  • Retained material properties data are provided on retained properties including tensile strength and elongation, ductility and embrittlement
  • Retained surface and appearance properties data are provided on retained properties including color change, yellowing, and cracking, among others
